Ends&Bends is used to generate spatial objects from raw navigation (ship routes) to be included in CDI records to describe the geometries of the observations: 

  • Typical navigation log files record more than one location / 10 seconds (ex: GPS outputs),
  • Size of these navigation log files are not practical to be managed or visualized using standard GIS software or services (WMS, WFS and GML…)

 Navigation log files must be subset, but sub setting must:

  • Keep the same geographical shape of the vessel route to allow accurate spatial queries
  • Reduce significantly the number of geographical locations to preserve response time (e.g. 1000 points for one month of deep sea navigation,1000 points for a week of inshore navigation).
